A feel of wee Izzy's fanny up a close and change to buy a Daintee.

Was at all three game (and the final) fuk knows what happened to the programs, the matador poster, the sombrero or the stuffed donkey, though the latter may be playing for us at the moment.

Must be at least 4 decades since I had an MB bar but I can still remember them as if it was yesterday.  Can't think of any old sweetie that I'd rather bring back.

Remember it in the news but was secondary school at time so no affected. Think the poll tax came along shortly after the milk thing as well.

nothing better in the months when the weather was cold, IIRC back in the day they came in wee one-third of pint bottles, drank 12 one morning.  

Was a member of the greedy wee bastard loyal.

Have those three and the Rennes home game.  Never got to the final.

In 1973,  5p would have got you in to the Rangers-Arsenal centenary match.
